I'm almost hesitant to give The Gilbert Inn the positive review it deserves -- because I want to keep the secret all to myself! My girlfriend and I decided to treat ourselves to a weekend getaway to Seaside and our selection of Gilbert Inn was more or less random. We were so pleasantly surprised at how quiet, comfortable, and charming... More

I am currently in Seaside staying somewhere else. After viewing the attic room, I settled on a price with the desk lady. I told her that I would send my wife in from the car to sign in. Three minutes later when my wife walked in the desk lady said she had just rented the room out online. Not very... More

Rocky - I would like to apologize for your experience with our Inn. During the summer If we do not make the reservation in the system immediately there is a chance that someone online can reserve it. I have discuss this feedback with our front desk and made some changes to ensure this will not happen again. I want to... More

Looking for something out of the ordinary, this small inn is a delight. Well located a block off the famous prom and a block from the main drag... Well kept, nice rooms, quite and comfortable. Pleasant staff. No elevator so if you are in an upstairs room you will have to lift your luggage. This is a landmark property and... More

Was amazed that we actually found a room for July 4th. The location is superb being one block from the beach and one beach off the main street. Such a great location for walking everywhere and really quiet. The staff at Gilbert Inn work hard to see that everyone is pleased. Fruit and chocolates available all day and cookies at... More

Beautiful 19th century inn, well preserved. Great service. Comfortable lodging. Outside gas fire pit complete with a s'more kit. One block from the main street of Seaside. Two blocks from beach access. A great place to get away to. I wouldn't recommend it for children. It's the getaway with out kids that you want this stop for.

We were thrilled to book a room in this inn that was in seaside and so close to everything, including the beach. It's a Victorian style inn, very romantic and the staff were friendly. The salt water taffy in the rooms was delicious! After a long day of driving, it was a perfect place to stop and enjoy.

One of the best places we have stayed in at seaside. Staff were great. Will stay again. Nice beds clean rooms. Only problem no ice machine needed to walk across street no big deal. This place is seconds from beach.

We were just passing through and thrilled with the price, location, cleanliness, etc. Yes, it is old, but the bathroom was a good size, well-equipped and very clean. The location couldn't be better and although we were afraid it might be a little noisy (because it truly is like staying in an older home) - it was perfectly quiet and... More

This is a great Inn and one of the oldest houses in Seaside itself. The room was comfortable, the house delightful, the price good. Only odd thing for a B&B style hotel was that there was no breakfast on offer (not even breakfast in another establishment as we have been offered on our travels before. I would suggest adding breakfast... More

We really enjoyed staying here however it is much more of a B&B experience than a hotel. We stayed in the Renee room which had a view of the garden and simply appointed. We had a great time and are looking forward to staying here again once the gazebo and fire pit are complete. If you have special needs or... More
